The Miniload Automated Warehouse or SILO is intended for the automatic handling of loads stored and organised in trays.
The trays, arranged in multiple sets of bays retrieved by a crane running down a central corridor form the structure of the SILO.
Trays are removed (or stored) by the cranes platform, to a work station, instructions can be sent direct from the integrated touch screen or via computer equipped with our Gestock management software where the SILO can manage locations dynamically depending on the volumes to be stored.
4 Steps of a cycle
- The operator specifies a part number or reference directly on a PC or via a barcode reader
- The crane docks in front of the tray containing (or to receive) the relevant part
- The tray is removed and taken to the workstation
- The user confirms on the PC the loading/picking
